If this is his first year, I believe he has at least two more years, possibly as many as four or five. You will get to mingle with a lot of new people, and who knows, maybe you will also find the guy or girl of your dreams there.

Personally I have a rule that I will not enter a relationship with a believing Mormon.
He is my soul mate and we love each other very much. Public displays of affection PDA show a lack of self-control.
